Lord of the Rings {Inspiration Shoot}

When I was a child, my bedtime stories were filled with woodland elves, giant spiders, black riders, hobbits, and all things Tolkien.
When I was in high school, I was often lost in my own world with my nose in a book or teaching myself a mythical language.
Though I am now an adult, I am still forever searching for ways to bring those magical lands to life through my lens.

So you can imagine my excitement when Colleen asked if I would want to bring Middle Earth to life in the form of a wedding inspiration shoot. And who else could possibly pose as our Elven lovebirds but my childhood best friend and muse, Quin, and her husband Tony?!

The magic wouldn't have existed without these amazing vendors and artists:

Clay & Lindsey {Santa Ynez, CA}

everything about clay & lindsey's wedding day was picture perfect (as you'll soon see).
from the hotel they got ready in, to a historical and emotional surprise for lindsey's mom, to their adorable first look, to the magical field across the street, to the bumpin' dance party --- the entire day was more fun than I could ever put into words. but my absolute FAVORITE thing about these two and their big day was the look on their faces every time they caught each other's eye or brushed one another's skin. there are some things in life you just can't fake...
